Migori UDA leaders urge Raila to abandon "disruptive" rallies
- On January 23, 2023, Raila Odinga held a rally at Kamukunji grounds soon after arriving in Kenya from a seven-day trip to South Africa.
- Bolstered by data from an anonymous IEBC whistleblower, which claimed he won the August 9 2022 Presidential Election by garnering 8.1million votes [against Ruto's purported 5.9 million], Raila said he does not recognise President Ruto as Kenya's Head of State.
Kuria West Member of Parliament Mathias Robbi has called on opposition leader Raila Odinga to end his rallies saying they are not good for the country’s economy.
Mathias, while speaking during a series of educational functions in his constituency on Saturday, February 5, said holding street protests at a time when the country is struggling with economic recovery will be detrimental to its political stability.
The legislator added that the previous regime almost plunged the country into economic depression and lauded President William Ruto for the milestones he’s made towards making life affordable to Kenyans.
Speaking at a different function, UDA’s Nyanza region coordinator Pharesz Oguda said that the political demonstrations will lead to loss of both property and life.
Oguda added that Raila should accept his role as the opposition leader as he awaits next elections.
